COURTS OF PARIS, NAPLES, ETC, IOI Dover, November 5th, 1796. The first time I left England to go to college I sailed from this very pier as they were firing the guns for Guy Fawkes' plot; and I arrived here to-day as the same festival was celebrating. The guns reminded me of this coincidence of circum- stances. Is it not odd ? I am almost tempted to sumere superbiam quczsitam mentis; for I am half intoxicated with the dignity that attends me : letters by special messengers from the Secretary of Stateócollectors of customs in waitingóDanout's son-in-law, with Pat Hennesy's son, cringing and bowing for leave to accompany me, the mayor taking my orders, &c., &c. Je commencerai a me croire ne pour les grandes aventures, if my tooth does not ache, which every now and then takes me off my high horse. I have brought a young man as secretary, who seems sensible, and likely to do well. Adieu; I do not believe I shall be able to write from Calais ; but if you do not hear of the Princess Augusta going to the bottom, you may conclude I am safely landed in Tigerland. God bless you all; you shall have a full account of Paris renouvelle when I have seen it.
